A2The doctor prescribes Wellbutrin only if the patient is not able to tolerate other ADHD medications. Be cautious this drug causes weight loss in majority of cases. Unlike other ADHD drugs, Wellbutrin act on the neuro-transmitters dopamine and norepinephrine and hence considered ideal drug for patients with ADHD. Be cautious with the side effects and reactions you may get out of this drug and never stop the drug on your own without consulting the doctor. This drug needs to be stopped gradually and sudden stoppage of this drug may cause serious side effects.
